Myself and six kids went on the half-day trip. The staff is awesome. They made this a great day. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience.

Good experience, we enjoyed it on a hot day. It was simple and the water cool. Anybody could have been involved - safe and easy day on the river. Make sure you use sun block - I got burned
